TORONTO, May 29, 2020/CNW/ – Serta Simmons Bedding (SSB), Canada’s premier mattress company will donate mattresses to local long-term care homes and shelters in Toronto and Quebec to aid in the fight against COVID-19.
Long-term care homes and shelters across the country have become frontlines to the COVID-19 pandemic. They now face critical shortages of necessary supplies such as personal protective equipment and care beds.
SSB Canada’s donation will be facilitated through its partnership with Relief Bed International, a non-profit organization that provides beds to impoverished people and disaster victims around the world. SSB will deliver mattresses to local shelters in the GTA, Blue Door Shelter, The Salvation Army – York Region and the Integrated Center for Health and Social Services Lanaudière in Quebec.
“As a company, SSB Canada recognizes the devastation and hardship COVID-19 has caused,” SSB President, Canada, Shawn Trinier said. “We are proud to do our part in making a difference to help those most in need to fight this virus.”
SSB will donate these beds with the help of National Mattress Outlets Plus+ who have generously offered their time and services to deliver these essential supplies on June 5th.
